The country megastar gets glam in a Rochas dress and subtly seductive smile, and reveals why even though she’s made it, she’ll ALWAYS keep her working class roots close to her heart!
"[I write the way I do] because country music is for real people. I think it would be very hard to write about my Louboutins. Do you know what I mean? My giant house, it’s not relatable. But my husband came from a small town and hardworking parents like I did, and I don’t think we’ve lost that mind-set. We don’t have a bowling alley in our basement. We don’t have houses on the beach and one in New York and one in L.A. I drive a three-year-old Ford Escape Hybrid. We don’t care about stuff like that."
Talk about down to earth!
Underwood also dishes on the first time she managed to indulge in needless luxury!
"My first stupid purchase was an accident. I was in Paris and went into one of those big, name-brand, fancy-schmancy designers, and I picked up a sweatshirt. Maybe I didn’t understand the price tag. I’m really bad with numbers. But when I went to check out, that sucker was $2,000 [And] I’ve [only] worn it twice!"
We think $2,000 doesn't seem like such a hefty price tag to us, especially since she's a millionaire! But srsly, who CARES what kinda car you're driving around in when you're walking around in Loubies?!!!
